Since 2004, he’s been writing non-partisan music that celebrates the very best of the United States. He also owns and operates an online marketing company (Liberty Web Marketing, LLC) which specializes in U.S. manufacturers.

Through award-winning music, videos, articles, interviews, and live performances, Matt’s goal is to inspire people to think about freedom, and to discover the tools we already have at our disposal to secure it. If these timeless principles can be summed up in one expression, it would be:
“Liberty means tolerance: If you want to keep your own liberty, you have to grant it to your neighbors.” -Matt Fitzgibbons
“Angels in White”
I am proud to announce the release of my latest single “Angels in White”. This song and video celebrates nurses and all that they do for us. It is dedicated to the memory of Susan Carol Bolack Sulier, L.P.N.
In August of 2019, I wrote this song for a friend as a memorial to his wife who had lost her battle with cancer the year before. I wanted to celebrate both her life and to thank all nurses for what they do. I don’t believe in coincidences, but the number of synchronicities that occurred throughout the creation of this song are too many to count. (More here about “Angels in White” including where to download, stream, lyrics, photos, etc..)
“Remember the Americans” & “Taps”
One of my main missions since I started PatriotMusic.com has been to acknowledge the sacrifices of our republic’s servicemen, servicewomen and veterans. “Remember the Americans” tells the fictional story of an American family’s experiences serving in U.S. military conflicts from WWI to the present day.
“The video for “Remember the Americans” is a collection of rarely-seen photos I scanned at the Library of Congress, just outside Washington D.C.. I had the privilege of spending several days pouring through thousands of photographs with my father (who was a history major) to find forgotten images that could compliment the song lyrics while reminding Americans the price of freedom.
“Taps” is my own version of the iconic military piece that both honors our fallen and signals lights-out.
“Taps” was written by U.S. General Daniel Butterfield in 1862 while recuperating after the Seven Days Battles outside Richmond, VA. The song itself is recognized the world-over as both quintessentially American and hauntingly beautiful. In my version, I use a 6-string for guitar harmonics, single notes on a harmonica, and a 12-string guitar as a backing track to maintain a respectful and distinctly American feel to a song that means so much to so many. This is the only song I have ever recorded which I did not write.
The images in this video focus on the many military cemeteries and memorials throughout our nation and represent the long history of American servicemen and women paying the ultimate sacrifice.
This video is a compilation of interviews I have done over the past few years ranging from 2007 to 2017 and includes a few of the T.V., radio, and podcasts I’ve done around the country. It includes sections of interviews with Tom Monahan (3-Time Emmy Award Winner), WTNH (CT Style), Michael Dukes (KBYR Alaska), Dr. Carole Lieberman (Nationally-syndicated), and Erskine Overnight (nationally-syndicated). It summarizes my beliefs and explains my overall goals. Musical performances have been removed to avoid copyright concerns, though some are available as videos on my YouTube channel. Some of the many other interviews I’ve done nationally are available on the Press page. To interview me for your show or to have me perform at a venue or on-air, please contact me.
“Why the United States Constitution is Still Relevant”
Winner of the “We the Future 2016 Best Short Film (25 and up) Video Competition” on Why the United States Constitution is Still Relevant.
At the time, I was writing weekly articles on the historical parallels of current events for national publications. I wrote one on exactly this subject for release on a Monday and read on Thursday that the organization Constituting America was holding a video contest with submissions due three days later. I quickly converted my article into a script and began filming the next day. To my surprise, I was notified a few weeks later that I had won. The coincidence of all of the events that transpired still amaze me.
“Eye of the Hurricane”, the 1st track of my 4th album “Pawns”, received an Honorable Mention in the 2015 SongDoor International Songwriting Competition and all others have received national airplay. A video compilation with samples is available here, CDs here and digital downloads are available at your favorite online music stores including: Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.”
